Looks for Target

Looks for Target (4/11)

  1. One of our long time Employees is retiring the end of this year and we are looking for another team member. Pleasant personality, detail oriented, focus oriented. Knowledge of the Shooting Sports and the equipment is a HUGE plus. Work in the industry you love with Bankers hours. 8-430 Monday - Friday. No nights or weekends. If interested please send me an email , chuckb@shootersconnection.com
  2. LOL, you would be wrong. Possible Uline is buying from same people we are as they are similar. I think when buying in bulk the pricing is similar. Cant buy just 1 or 10 at uline but you can from us.
  3. This is the response from the manufacturer when I asked them about the possibility of adhesive being light. and th second question if he has ever seen stock come in with light adhesive. " We have not changed anything about the paster labels; we are still using the same material and adhesive we always have used in the past. The adhesive is actually applied by the paper mill, not something that we apply in house, so there should not be any chance of the adhesive running out during production. If I may ask, are the trouble pasters being applied to recycled cardboard? We had some issues in the past with some recycled boxes we'd purchased - we couldn't even get carton tape to stick to them, let alone labels. Could this be a possibility? Please let us know your thoughts. We take any issues you may have very seriously and want to help all we can to solve them." "Almost never. The paper companies do have a range of tolerance in their spec, but it's generally pretty tight. If there are specific orders these happened on we could try to get the company to analyze them, but I've almost never seen any material that was far out of spec without it being noticed in the production process."

  5. Had a call today referencing this thread and one other here. So i wanted to address it. If these were new pasters I wish you would have called us to get it resolved. This has never been an issue with new pasters. Yes they do get old and dried out with the time frame depending on storage conditions. We do use the most aggressive adhesive available for this application. It just hasn't been an issue which is why I am replying to this 16 months later.
  6. It wasn't clear if the pasters were ours or not. I did look up your account and didn't see any pasters ordered but that doesn't mean the club didn't buy through another account. Trying to get an idea of how old they are. The adhesive we use is the most aggressive for this application. Age as well as storage environment can cause it to dry out. We haven't changed manufacturers for as long as we have been doing them. 20 years I imagine. I did have a call today about some that were a year old and they referenced this and one other thread on Enos over a year ago, so I searched it and wanted to address it. We have also run into the issue at our local club but found out they were stored outside and hadn't been rotated out. No telling how long they had been stored in that outdoor building. Just remember they do have a shelf life. Doesn't save that much buying in bulk. Maybe 20.00 a case. Better to buy fewer and have fresh pasters than the problems of them falling off.
  7. Well before this is closed let me ad some light to this discussion. Seemed one poster joined Enos just to trash MBX and me. First we took the complaint serious and Adrian took the 3 barrels back from the 3 guys who all were connected somehow. Adrian tested them, videos of 2 test provided. Results were good. So Adrian and I discussed it and I suggested he ask for the gun to test to find out what was going on. They refused. I thought , why? Still don't know except maybe they didn't want Adrian to see and show that the barrel was fine. I just got off the phone with him and he has sold 80 of these barrels with only these 3 complaints. I know one guy said he knew what he was doing and had changed 3 barrels out in the last 2 weeks. So maybe they were just trying a bunch of different ones and returning what they didn't like. Sorry but with the margins in this business I cant eat that loss. And why we don't take back used stuff. I learned a long time ago that some will do things like buy every holster available , try them all and then want to return me used product I cant sell as new. Now Adrian was willing to work with them and resolve it but then the trash talking on here started and the emails to us compared to the talk on here did not match up. He is still working with the 3rd guy. Sent him a complete top end with new barrel to try. He is waiting for responses to that and to get his parts back. This kind of stuff hurts a business and they knew it would. Give us a refund or the trash talk starts. I told Adrian he had to take it head on, I've been down this road before. And why I am here now posting these. But now a perfectly product has been smeared. We just talked about him putting these barrels in his guns exclusively since the results have been great except these 3 guys from the same area. I told him that would be risky given this publicity. Here are the test videos of two of those barrels. https://youtu.be/EMmRYdWoeE8 https://youtu.be/fqF280gC8hQ
  8. We do have some left from our initial order that we will sell at the introductory price for a limited time. Once that ends then they will be the same price everywhere.
  9. Actually it is not identical. The 5.11 bag is identical in design to our old bag since they copied it. So we made ours even better. Our new one has many more features and is designed to be more user friendly. Might take a closer look.
  10. We have had them back in stock for a couple weeks now.
  11. Sarge, you get that price since you are on our sponsorship program for wearing our shirt. That was set up years ago and hasn't changed. I have not heard of an RTS3. There is a new model of the original cmore on the drawing board but is over a year out at least. The only reasoning behind that BF deal was I was prompted by a few people to do one so I picked some items and set pricing to create a frenzy which is what a BF sale is about. Unfortunately this industry does not have profit margins anywhere close to those of the big box stores. They may have 80% profit in clothing and many times will run a loss leader to get people in on electronics and such. So that's what I did on the 6moa rts2 and we sold out. No conspiracy on running inventory low for a new model.
  12. Yes, except for the discount group or dealers. So if we give discounts we cant also pay the 3.5% Am ex fees on top of it. SO its not available to those in those groups.

  13. Not sure who told you that, all my people know its not. I will mention this to them so they know just in case they did say that. Its not identical to any belt, or it wasnt when we had them made, but like our shooting bag I am sure somebody will copy it at some point.
  14. Sorry, belt is not the same as the CR speed. Ours is a little stiffer than Cr speed. Have heard of a few of the first batch keepers coming unstitched. No need to buy a replacement just make a note in your next order and we will throw one in the box at no charge.
  15. Key to sizing is to measure your waist, never go by pant size.
